I know it feels as a new player coming in that you need to have X or Y or Z to compete.

I really am going to say from experience that it is not true.

Even with all the fleet gear you could want and a fleet ship or lockbox ship the way the game works when people are buffed for defense they will NOT take dmg from you no matter what you do.

This game like any other MMO is more about timing then gear.

Yes we all admit creep has crept into STO and it does make more of a difference then it did 4 years ago. However gear is still not what makes the difference for people. It helps but it won't turn a new player into a pro.

When I have some time tonight... I am going to pick 2 or 3 of my current PvP toons and post there current builds... and then post a cheap version that will be 95% as good... a ship someone could easily run while they spend the 1-3 weeks earning the stuff I have on the Finished build.

There is no magic gear choice that turns you into an Elite player.
When the messenger comes to appropriate your profits ... kill the messenger.
